Some are ending up in hospitals with the deadly virus.

The influencer, 21-year-old "Larz", went viral earlier this week after sharing a video of himself licking a toilet bowl, according to the Daily Mail. As clout-chasing becomes nearly as unsafe of a disease as coronavirus itself, it would appear that some of the less bright folks on the Internet have chose to participate in a viral challenge on TikTok, which seems them licking the seats of public toilets, open ice cream tubs in grocery stores, and more. Louise had filmed herself licking the toilet seat on an airplane and claimed that the rapidly spreading virus could not harm her. He then turns towards the camera and says, "Coronavirus challenge", reported The Sun.

Recently on Twitter, a California influencer was hospitalized after participating in the Coronavirus challenge toilet licking.

Larz was previously known as the "ice cream licker" after he was seen licking ice cream and putting it back on store shelves.

Russia, which announced the death of two patients who tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday, is expected to follow suit. In France, health authorities reported 231 new deaths from Covid-19 yesterday, taking the total to 1,331.

His Twitter account, @gayshawnmendes, was also suspended for promoting the potentially risky viral stunt. He also tweeted, "I tested positive for Coronavirus", from his account that has since been suspended, though it's not clear if he got infected while he attempted the challenge or not.

The Coronavirus disease is not a joke, and its definitely not an Internet challenge.

In a follow-up video called "Why I licked the toilet seat, now I'm running for president", Ava Louise said she was trolling the mainstream media with the stunt and the toilet seat she licked was on a sugar daddy's plane. And among the many freakish challenges that we've seen so far, the #CoronavirusChallenge tops the list.

Cody Pfister, the 26-year-old who did the Coronavirus Challenge by licking products at a Missouri Walmart on March 11, was charged on Tuesday with 'knowingly causing a false belief or fear that a condition involving danger to life existed'.
